How recommendations work

Book recommendations are based on what's popular or trending in Google products, what’s mentioned across the web, and what’s new.

If you’re signed in to your Google Account and have personal results turned on, Google’s recommendations are also based on your activity like:

  • Past searches and browsing history.
  • Books you’ve saved and marked as read.
  • Book preferences you set, like Upvotes and Downvotes.
